Man, Prince, or GOD?

Nick Squire of the BBC reports from Vanuatu, where some of the locals worship Prince Philip as a God.

"He's a god, not a man," claims Chief Jack, of the village of Yaohnanen.

Could this be why Vanuatu is the happiest country in the world?

That's truly weird. I wonder what they make of his gaffes. Great catch, BTW!

Apparently Prince Philip's worshippers are all illiterate, so he should be grand.

Vanuatu is also host to the Cargo Cult, the world's greatest religion, and not just because Serge Gainsbourg wrote a song about it.
